Re: HOW TO OPEN A BBB FILE ?

Hi there, I did what you recommended in your post with no luck. I'm using a Mac and only have Pages. Is there another way of accessing the files? I need to access my noted from my blackberry urgently. Thanks

Re: HOW TO OPEN A BBB FILE ?

yesItems, I gave tried all the methods listed. Blackberry backup only downloads windows files eleven when I click on the Mac option. The other one with the spreadsheets does download. I then copied the file name in the slot provided with no luck.

Re: HOW TO OPEN A BBB FILE ?

Have you tried using phoneMiner to open the .bbb file?

Re: HOW TO OPEN A BBB FILE ?

Hi there,
Still nothing. I received a message saying that Amrak cannot be opened as Microsoft applications cannot be opened using OS X. I'm at a loss...

Re: HOW TO OPEN A BBB FILE ?

I don't believe there is an option for Macs. You may just need to find a Windows based PC for this.

If you want to thank someone for their comment, do so by clicking the Thumbs Up icon.

If your issue is resolved, don't forget to click the Solution button on the resolution!

Sure there is...  I posted above.

3. Another IPD and BBB file utility is BlackBerry Backup Extractor, and is available for PC and Mac, and can be found here: http://www.blackberryconverter.com/ There is a free and paid version.

Re: HOW TO OPEN A BBB FILE ?

Hi MissBr, 

 

I'm Livia, I'm with the BlackBerry Backup Extractor project, sorry to hear you didn't manage to use our software on your Mac. The app not a native Mac installer, and this is why the download is an .exe file. You can still run the program on OSX but you need to install Mono and X11 Libraries, here's a link to our help and support page.

 

Once understood the install is an easy process and the BlackBerry Backup Extractor will recover your notes from the .bbb file. If you run into any trouble installing the app with Mono, you should reach our team of customer support superstars, they will surely help! Contact us if you have any questions (support@reincubate.com) :smileyhappy:
